In recent years, rare AmpC-type [beta] lactamases that confer resistance to cefepime and cefpirome have been recovered from E.
The following antimicrobial disks were used to assess susceptibility testing: clavulanic acid 30mg / disk, piperacillin/tazobactam 110mg / disk, cefotaxime 30mg / disk, cefpirome 30mg / disk, cefuroxime 30mg / disk, vancomycin 30mg / disk, aztreonam 30mg / disk, imipenem 10mg / disk, amikacin 30mg / disk, gentamicin 10mg / disk, tobramycin 10mg / disk, erythromycin 15mg / disk, clarithromycin 15mg / disk, clindamycin 2mg / disk, ciprofloxacin 5mg / disk, chloramphenicol 30mg / disk, sulphamethoxazole 25mg / disk, fosfomycin 50mg / disk, fusidic acid 10mg / disk by OXOID.
Antibiotic susceptibility tests for levofloxacin, pefloxacin, minocycline, and cefpirome were performed only after 2008.
A total of 14 antibiotic discs (ampicillin 25ug, cefotaxime 30ug, cefpirome 30ug, chloramphenicol 30ug, ciprofloxacin 5ug, clindamycin 2ug, doxycycline 30ug, erythromycin 15ug, gentamycin 10ug, levofloxacin 5ug, linezolid 30ug, sulbactam/cefoperazone 105 ug, teicoplanin 30 ug and vancomycin 30 ug) were tested against 106 Enterococcus isolates to check whether these are sensitive, intermediate or resistant to these antibiotics.
9 The antibiotic discs of clavulanic acid (AMC) 30 g cloxacillin (OB) 5 g piperacillin/tazobactam (TZP) 110 g cefotaxime (CTX) 30 g cefpirome (CPO) 30 g sulbactam-cefoperazone (SCF) 105 g vancomycin (VA) 30 g aztereonam (ATM) 30 g imipenem (IPM) 10 g gentamicin (CN) 10 g tobramycin (TOB) 10 g amikacin (AK) 30 g erythromycin (E) 15 g clarithromycin (CLR) 15 g clindamycin (DA) 2 g ciprofloxacin (CIP) 5 g chloramphenicol (C) 30 g sulphamethethoxazole (SXT) 25 g fosfomycin (FOS) 50 g fusidic acid (FD) 10 g nd doxycycline (DO) 30 g discs were used to assess the antimicrobial susceptibility.
The isolate was resistant to lincomycin and susceptible to amoxicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanate, ticarcillin/clavulanate, piperacillin, piperacillin/tazobactam, cefalotin, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, cefpirome, cefepime, imipenem, gentamicin, tobramycin, netilmicin, amikacin, erythromycin, pristinamycin, polymyxin B, trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole, nalidixic acid, ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, and fosfomycin.
The following antibiotics (all supplied from Hi Media Laboratories, Mumbai, India) were tested: ceftriaxone (30ug), cefoperazone (75[micro]g), cefixime (30ug), ceftazidime (30[micro]g), cefepime (30[micro]g), cefpirome (30[micro]g), gentamicin (10[micro]g), amikacin (30[micro]g), ofloxacin (5[micro]g), gatifloxacin (5[micro]g) and aztreonam (30[micro]g).
20) Otro tipo de betalactamasas involucradas en la resistencia a los betalactamicos, con excepcion del cefepime, cefpirome y carbapenemos, que hacen parte del grupo C de [beta] lactamasas de Ambler, son las denominadas AmpC, codificadas por genes que se encuentran en el cromosoma de algunos miembros de la familia Enterobacteriaceae, las que conforman lo que se ha denominado como grupo SPACEM o SPICE (Serratia spp.
Determination of activities of levofloxacin, alone and combined with gentamicin, ceftazidime, cefpirome, and meropenem, against 124 strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa by checkerboard and time-kill methodology.
Extended-spectrumbeta-lactamase mediated resistance was assessed by disc diffusion method of four antibiotics ceftazidime, cefpirome, cefpodoxime and cefotaxime and corresponding disc containing ceftazidime/clavulanic acid, cefpirome/clavulanic acid, cefpodoxime/clavulanic acid and cefotaxime/clavulanic acid.
Organisms over expressing AmpC [beta]-lactamases (cephalosporinases) are a major clinical concern because these organisms are usually resistant to all [beta]-lactam drugs, exept cefepime, cefpirome and the carbapenems.
